Every time you start a sentence or statement with I AM you are defining who you are and who you want to be. Think of I AM statements as wishes and the universe as your genie; your wish is the universes command! What you say after I AM will be fulfilled so it is important to be aware of the emphasis you place behind these two words.
I am fat, I am ugly, I am useless, I am broke, and I am tired, are all commands which the universe has no option but to fulfil. Not only this, but when we speak negatively the power of our emotions fuels these statements even more, taking us further away from who we are and who we want to be.
Knowing this think of the power I am happy, I am grateful, I am awesome, I am abundant, and I am love can carry. Once you say these powerful positive statements after I AM, the universe has no option but to fulfill your desire.
Teaching your child to choose their words carefully is one of the easiest ways to help them become the person they want to be. Not only this but it also teaches them to take control of their ego and manage their thoughts. If we can control our words, it is a lot easier for us to control our minds.
The next time you hear your child make a negative or undesirable statement catch them out on it and ask them to change their words. If you hear them saying they are not good enough or they cant do it, make them aware of this statement and get them to say ‘I am capable’ or ‘I am enough.’ If you hear them saying I’m not pretty enough or I am ugly, stop them straight away and get them to repeat, ‘I am beautiful.’
Teach your child about the power of their words and to consciously think about what they are saying before they say it. If children know from an early age that what they think and say has the power to create their own experience, they will be able to grow knowing that they are always in control of their life and their happiness.
